Chinese Hat and James Islands

May 25, 2018 - National Geographic Islander

Today we visited Chinese Hat near James at 6:20 am on Kayaks and were able to see Galapagos penguins, herons and sea lions. It was a great way to start the day.

After breakfast, we had a second round of kayaking and zodiac rides along the shore. Then we went snorkeling.

After lunch, we had a lecture on Charles Darwin and went to visit an extensive lava field before returning to the National Geographic Islander for a BBQ on the Sky Deck.
